COVID-19 State of Vaccine Confidence Insights Report 15 (August 31 - September 13, 2021)   [open pdf - 849KB]

From the Summary: "Consumer and media interest in vaccination requirements increased significantly following President Biden's announcement of a COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] action plan to boost vaccination rates on September 9, 2021. Some consumers and news outlets defended the announcement, highlighting that vaccination requirements are not new; some even wished the requirements applied to more people. Other consumers reacted negatively, telling others '#DoNotComply' and claiming that vaccination requirements are authoritarian, illegal, and an attack on their personal freedoms. Some consumers expressed confusion and frustration with the effectiveness of the vaccines to decrease the spread of COVID-19 and protect against severe COVID-19 symptoms. Some social media users and news releases continued to pose questions about the strength of natural immunity or promoted the idea that natural immunity is superior to vaccine-mediated immunity. Social media users expressed disappointment and belief that the United States has not, and will not, contain the COVID-19 outbreak."
